Hi Tom,

I tried this once, and it was a miserable failure.

Everything was going fine with the decals until the end, when I sprayed
the figures with clearcoat sealer -- something in the spray sealer
reacted with the ink on the decals, and the decals were ruined.

I'm not really sure what will solve this problem... maybe I should be
using a different kind of inkjet printer to make the decals, but I'm not
willing to buy a new printer just for the sake of making decals.

See you in 7 weeks!

Mr. Pope or anyone who has tried this, if you're listening, 

I was thinking about some decals for some of my APCs. Some NATO style
markings from an SFOR book I have. 

I see some inkjet printing decals on the net (with white or clear
backgrounds). I wonder if they'll work in a normal inkjet, though they
make references to the dry ink of the ALPs printer. I'm thinking to
that, if you let the ink from the normal inkjet dry, then covered it
the spray "decal set", you could then immerse the dryed result in water
(to apply) without it wrecking the printed result. I am sure someone has
experimented to a great extent somewhere along the line. Let me know if
it's a likely scenario I have crafted or if I'm destined for
